BOISE, Idaho – Firefighters from multiple agencies were called to a blaze at a Boise apartment complex that left one person dead and others injured.

Firefighters helped one woman out of a third-floor apartment using a ladder.

It started at about 1:15 p.m. Saturday at an apartment complex off West State Street.

It was not immediately clear how the fire started.
